So I had my 2nd chemo for this round on Thursday. When I met with my Onc she examined my peripheral neuropathy again which has now started to move from my big toes, to the little toes, and down my foot. It has also started on my right big toe. This doesn’t happen to all [...]Continue Reading →
Chemo is postponed. My platelets are still way too low so the chemo is dangerous. Would’ve been wasted time and money on the trip except I found out for sure from my doc that the numbness in my toes is unfortunately permanent nerve damage. It’s going to be monitored and if necessary (if it gets [...]Continue Reading →
Sadly I’ve reported to the doc that I’ve lost sensation in my left big toe this past Saturday and on Sunday the little toes followed. The unfortunate thing about peripheral neuropathy which is what it’s called is that most girls I’ve spoken to who have had this happen never regain the feeling that they’ve lost. [...]Continue Reading →
Hi friends, Chemo was delayed a few days due to the blood set back. I will be heading to NY on Tues instead of Thurs. Hopefully I will still be recovered in time for dinner on Saturday. I would only miss it if I am extremely sick. My hair finally started to fall out so [...]Continue Reading →
Hi, I was released from the hospital on Friday evening. I have to report back each morning for a shot of Neupogen and follow-up bloodwork on Monday. I spoke to Dr. Martino who is an Oncologist with the Lehigh Valley Hospital Group. He’s good and very knowledgable. I think I am going to continue to [...]Continue Reading →

I went back to work Monday and slowly over the past three days was able to work myself into “almost” a full day today. I left one hour short of a full day schedule. I was pretty proud of myself and it felt good to be at work. However, when I would get home at [...]Continue Reading →
So my first day back to work went better than I thought it would. I felt good and thought maybe I could do a full day instead of a half and I’m glad I didn’t. The night before I didn’t sleep well because I had so much on my mind going back in so I [...]Continue Reading →
Well, it’s day 2 and we got the PET scan results! The Scan shows NO cancer anywhere! Wow what great news! We are absolutely thrilled! The doctor said we could not have gotten any better results. Ok, now back down to Earth! Faun now must go through 4 more rounds of chemotherapy of 2 different [...]Continue Reading →
Ok. Day 1 down and it was rough! Started out with Faun waking up in the middle of the night with a horrendous kidney/bladder infection. Finally got the ok from the Dr to take some medication. After 2 hours of crazy pain, throwing up and 100 trips to the bathroom, it is now 1 hour [...]Continue Reading →
